The fastest high-speed railway service can now be found in China. China's new train averages 217 mph, making it faster than a speeding bullet! Cutting travel time between cities from 6 hours to 2 hours and 45 minutes, the railway travels through 20 cities and covers 663 miles.

With the aim of spurring more economic growth around the country, China's new train is part of a massive rail development program. The program involves expanding high-speed rail service to 42 more lines by 2012.
